    2002 / 03 Astra SRI differences

    Hi,

    First time poster.

    Found a 52 Plate Astra 2.2 3 dr SRI registered Sept 02.

    I'm looking through the brochure and want to know if anything has changed since the Sept 02 SRIs

    The things I'm hoping it has are Cruise control, 16" Alloys, ABS, Traction Control, Boot Spoiler, Twin exhaust and Aluminium trim inside eg, the gear stick, body colour door handles

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi I've got a 52 pre facelift SRI (2.2)

    It's got Cruise control, 16" Alloys, ABS, Traction Control, Boot Spoiler, Twin exhaust.

    The facelift (2003) models get different 16" alloys, dark coupe style headlights and rear clusters and colour coded handles and alloy centre console - all the bits that modders do first are now standard .

    Ether way it's still a damn fine car with a sound engine

    Thanks, bit disapointed it's not the latest version.

    Still a very new car though. I can change the handles and do the centre console later. I guess the suspension etc hasn't changed which is more important than the cosmetics.

    Oh and, it has an alarm, right?

    Don't think the suspension has been update - still 'sports' and a 20mm drop as standard over other lower spec models.

    Yep, got a Cat1 alarm as standerd.

    What mileage price and colour is the one your're looking at?

    The twin tailpipe exhaust is an option, made by Irmscher. None of the 2003 Sri's have a turbo under the bonnet, like my 2002 one

    The split oval tailpipe was standard on pre-facelift 2.2 SRi's (according to my brochure) - have they dropped it now then??

    Well, I ordered it off Network Q without even thinking it may not be the latest version, but it's a

    52 reg Silver SRI, 3 door with 4000 on the clock for £11,000.

    Have you tried any car supermarket jobbies - probably save a 1 or 2 grand on that - A local one's got facelift 2.2's for £8999 - 8k milage.

    just a thought

    Thanks, but the dealer service is very important to me so I've got it from a vauxhall dealer I've used before and got the Network Q warranty. I feel it's worth the extra for that piece of mind.

    Are we saying that the 2002 hasn't got the sports exhaust and it's an option then?

    The pre facelift 2.2 SRi does have the split oval back box as standard.

    It's in black and white in myVauxhall Brochure for that particular period in time.

    A sort of P.S. - welcome to Astra-Sport, Sabre UK - Enjoy the site and your new SRi

    Whereabouts in the UK are you?
